AMD Ryzen 7 India Prices Revealed

AMD has announced that the Ryzen range of processors will be globally launched on 2nd March. The series will be launched with three Ryzen 7 CPUs, which are supposed to be the premium end of Ryzen chips. These compete directly with Intel’s i7 range of processors, and if the early benchmarks are any clue, seriously outperform them, especially in terms of price.

Review: WD Blue SSD 250 GB

WD Blue SSDs are the brand’s first consumer SSDs after WD acquired SanDisk last year. With PC users favouring faster data transfer rates and better safety features, SSDs are slowly becoming a viable replacement for hard disk drives (HDDs), as they can greatly reduce boot and load times, and are a lot easier to maintain and carry around than an HDD.   The WD Blue is a SATA SSD available in two form factors: a 2.5″ and an M.2 version, and comes in three variants: 250 GB, 500 GB and 1 TB. It is supposed to be their mainstream SSD that focuses on PC enthusiasts, gamers and content creators. Like most Solid State Drives, the WD Blue 2.5″ is rather compact, only 7 mm in height. It comes in a black metal case which is mostly covered with stickers on both sides. While the to...

Real Time Strategy – A Tribute To A Dying Genre

When we think of video games in general (and especially us Indians), we mostly think of action packed games like Call of Duty, huge brawling games such as Grand Theft Auto, competitive multiplayer games like Counter Strike or FIFA, or if your life is dull and boring: Candy Crush. But we hardly think of games which bought the essence of PC gaming into the world. The Real Time Strategy games (no…. not Clash of Clans). Real Time Strategy gaming is what separates PC gamers from console. Sure, there are few games available on consoles which are RTS (example: Halo Wars), but the traditional RTS will always belong to the PC. Sadly, this mighty breed is dying a slow, painful death. Over the years we see increasing games of different Genre such as first-person-shooter and less of RTS, but why? Well...
